“I learned no detail was too small. It was all about the details.”
Mastery. This is a rare WHY. One of the most rare WHYs, in fact. The animal that is Mastery is an impressive one. Doing something halfway is not an option for them and skimping on the details is unheard of.
Mastery is such a particular WHY that it is easy to see if it is truly in someone’s WHY.os (WHY, HOW, or WHAT). These people will dive deeper than anything you’ve experienced before. Their breadth of knowledge and desire to learn every nuance is other-worldy.
Those with the WHY of Mastery will find something as simple as bread making and become obsessed. They will try different methods, different measurements, different recipes, different temperatures, different cooking times, and anything possible to perfect the perfect loaf and get that perfect flakey crunch. Whereas the rest of us will look up a recipe and be satisfied with a loaf that rises at all. Those with the WHY of Mastery take this depth into their specific interests, loves, and curiosities of life. They may not desire this much detail for every aspect of their lives but only for what they truly have their eye and mind set on. And even with this incredible attention to detail, they may still feel they have so much to learn and yet to perfect it.
If you or someone you know has the WHY of Mastery or Mastery in their WHY.os, learn from them, for they are sponges of knowledge and see life through a multi-faceted lens.
